Manchester United and Manchester City
It’s always an exciting thing when Manchester United and Manchester City face each other in the Premier League. This spectacle will happen again on Saturday when the two Manchester giants will go head to head at the Old Trafford. Let’s discuss it in our football prediction betting tips today.
Manchester United approach this derby from 6th place in the league, but they are not in their best possible mood despite winning their last four matches in the Prem. On Tuesday the Red Devils dissapointingly said goodbye to the Champions League after a 2-3 loss against RB Leipzig in Germany. The English giants finished third in their group so they will play in Europa League after the New Year.
Now Manchester United must focus on the Premier League again. Lately they are doing more than good – four wins in the last four games. This allowed the Red Devils to move just two points behind Leicester and the Top 4.
Last week Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team made a strong performance against West Ham in London. They conceded a goal in the first half, but after the halftime United turn the game around. Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford scored for the visitors.
Manchester City don’t have the same problems – they qualified for the Champions League 1/8-finals, so now they will visit the Theatre of Dreams in a much better mood. During the week City faced Olympique Marseille at the Etihad and enjoyed a dominating 3-0 win.
In the Premier League Manchester City are 7th in the standings with 18 points – just one behind their next opponent United. The Cityzens still have a work to do, though – they are not as close to the top as they would want to.
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the Manchester United – Manchester City derby at the Old Trafford. We expect some really good football here.
